Artist's Play Room #57 ~ Birthday Giraffes

Happy Birthday Jenn!!!

I've been quite excited this year BEcause my own birthday is one of those milestone birthdays, 60...


I don't have any firm plans for this birthday, but I want to DO something that Makes A REAL Difference in the World...


I've seen some ideas others have done like giving their birthdays away to help a cause like water...


Or encourage others to try making changes that have made a difference to them, to their quality of Life...


So... I have a little bit more than a month BEfore my 60th birthday, and with Jenn's prompting for this week's Artist's Play Room, I've been puzzling and considering and, yes, giraffe-ing.

I've had a few ideas.

I've dug out a few of my past ideas that I sort of forgot about along the way.

And I am asking YOU and anyone you might know for suggestions.

Meanwhile, Happy Birthday, Jenn!! 
I hope your day [er, week] is wondrously over the top and deLIGHTfull!!

I just love your kooky and quirky giraffes! They're so colorful and playful - great work! You've got some good birthday ideas going on there - I turned 60 last Dec but had my party in July since the world was supposed to end on my birthday and I didn't want to miss the celebration! :)

Your colours are so vivid and happy, and the giraffes so deliciously 'off the wall'.
I've been happier with every decade-birthday that has passed, and I am sure you will be too. I wish you the happiest birthday when it arrives.
As too suggestions, i can only say that with 80 only two and a little bit away, I've tried all my life to make the world a better place, and now I realise that my own best way is to do it for one individual whenever I can. I look forward to seeing what you decide on. XX

I wish you the best birthday ever Currie...you deserve it ♥
So a Bungy jump isn't on your plan then? I'll have to rethink now. I'll follow with interest what you'll be up to....meanwhile your giraffe reminds me of African art...so bright and alive with colour!
I hope to join APR soon. I've missed it so much ;D

Happy one month before your birthday, Ms. Currie! I love your giraffe and think you should use it on your birthday invitations. You could also auction it and give the money to charity as your milestone project. Blessings!
